Pray for Haiti – One Year Later

January 10, 2011 | Posted In From the Exec Director | Share

The decade prior to this one held a number of natural disasters that left significant imprints in many communities around the world.  A year ago on January 12, the current decade followed suite when the earthquake struck the country of Haiti, one of the poorest countries in the world.  Thousands were killed, thousands were left alone and thousands responded with herculean like effort to be a puzzle piece in the disaster response after math.  What took seconds to tear down a nation, will take years to rebuild.  We all prayed. My guess is that even some who don’t pray on a regular basis or who don’t know who they are praying towards exactly –  prayed. To rebuild, means to recreate the infrastructure or the foundation.  It is just as urgent to pray now as it was a year ago.  Will you do so?  While this tragedy is one of epic proportion that brought unfortunate death to so many, it also birthed many new heroes who have and are still stepping up to the plate to serve with their talents and treasures bringing life to those who feel lifeless.  “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.”  Proverbs 13:12

Friends, let’s not forget.  Let’s not grow weary.  Let’s not lose hope.  Most importantly, let’s worship our maker and stand believing in full restoration according to His will and purpose for this country who has suffered tremendously.   Let’s Pray for Haiti and those who are serving to help build bridges.  Bridges to a new community, a new city and a new nation.  This Wednesday at 4pm EST, join us along with many through the Christian Alliance for Orphans Webinar or simply wherever you find yourself with some moments to be still before the Lord.  Webinar Registration Here >

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”  Galations 6:9
